with al sharpton, the president suggested that the g.o.p. is reluctant to raise taxes because helping the rich is really all that binds these republicans together. listen. >> my sense is that their basic view is that nothing is important enough to raise taxes on wealthy individuals or corporations. and they would prefer to see these kinds of cuts that could slow down our recovery over closing tax loopholes. and that's the thing that bind them together at this point. >> that's the thing that bind the republican party together in the president's view. but given that 42% of americans identify or leaning republican does the president mean to say all those people, all they really care about, the thing that bind them together with that party label is their desire to protect the rich? that will come as a surprise to the millions of americans who are identified republicans who are not rich and really don't care about the rich. we'll have a fair and balanced debate on this just ahead. in the meantime, there's a fox news extreme weather alert. a massive blizzard dumping more than a foot

absolutely right, reverend sharpton. over four decades, four times the supreme court upheld section v against constitutional challenges. it's recognized as a crowning achievement and has gone a distance in recognizing racial discrimination in those places is a different character. it's more intense, more persistent. section v is a strong medicine, a strong remedy to a strong type of discrimination that's persisted over time. the supreme court recognized the gains we have seen have been part and partial of section v. what the court recognized today in oral argument, there's been progress, but discrimination. there was a moment in the oral argument when justice briar asked, i think we, the court, have consensus around two points, one, we have traveled a tremendous distance in seeking to eradicate the voting. justice briar posted the question to the lawyer. who can address it? is it you? the lawyer for alabama put his hands up, no, it's not me. the congress in 2006 met that question. congress conducted 21 hearings over ten months, heard from 90 witnesses for and against reauthorizing sec
